If you consider yourself an Antiqcool fan and would like to help us promote our music here is one simple thing you can do. The Antiqcool Music Widget. It took me a while to figure out exactly what a widget was, still not entirely sure but I do know it’s an invaluable tool. If you have a web page, a myspace page, a Facebook Page a blog or any other kind of online web presence one simple thing you can do which should only take a few minutes of your time is to copy the code from the Antiqcool Music Widget and paste it into your web page or blog. You can find the code herehttp://blogs.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendId;=167497079&blogId;=521468141
Girl in a Room is a wistful, sad and beautifully spare track with acoustic guitar, vocals and synth.

Continuing the growing Knox Road trend of featuring artists who provide little to
no information about themselves (see: Hello, Broken Arrow and Manet,) I present
to you Antiqcool, from just outside Chester, England. As far as I can tell
(and have been told,) Antiqcool is the project of Pete Smith and various friends.
When I asked Smith for more information, this is mostly what he had to say:
We are a mysterious bunch, the limelight is our kryptonite
which clearly makes life difficult for people who want to write about us.
Difficult, indeed, but kinda cool. Especially when the music is good. If you like soft
harmonies, acoustic guitar, and songs that lull you to sleep, you’ll be okay with
Antiqcool. And sticking with Smith’s “kryptonite” theme, that’s all I’m going to say.

The good old fashioned musical mystery, an audio collaboration that could easily be as complicated as the Enigma Code, a personnel puzzle to confuse the most ardent of reviewers. I..m sure Chester based Pete Smith refrains from masks and disguises but wonderfully composed collections of music, EP..s and albums are a growing trend from those elusive ego-less musicians. Out of the countless subliminal comparisons that surround Antiqcool, the term ..Ian Brown goes to The Cambridge Folk Festival.. so neatly labels the direction and sound.
